Sky Watch Friday #14: Deja Voodoo


"Daymoon"
Raleigh, NC - November 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Sky Watch Friday

Day or night, there's something about the moon that I can't resist photographing. But I've never quite figured out the geometry that makes the moon show up during the day in any phase other than full.
Deja Vu Alert: In case you were wondering, no this isn't the same shot I posted for Blue Monday this week. That shot was taken at Atlantic Beach back in late October. This one was taken at Theyland Stables here in Raleigh in mid-November. And when I scheduled these I didn't realize I'd scheduled them to appear in the same week!
Guess I really am a lunar-tic, huh?

Great lunar shot for a lunartic! I understand camera compulsion; I'm usually looking for round red natural things.

Great shot. I need to practice more at shooting the moon,day or night, bec each time it doesnt turn out the way i wanted.

Fantastic image and like the pun of a title. Day moons are surreal images.

Mojo,
I'm glad you said you're a lunar-tic and not me. LOL

Beautiful shot of the moon.

Robin said...

Fabulous shot. My daughter's been asking me all week what the moon is doing out in the daytime. We figure he just got tired of always being in the dark and wanted to come play while it's light too.

I'm loving this photo! I've been here staring at it for a while now. It's ... well I can't think of the right word ... wonderous, magical .... awe-inspiring (2 words I know)

Funny how much the moon influences the earth and those who live here. The crime rate goes up on a full moon too. Me, I loe the moon in any phase.

Indrani said...

Nice shot of the moon, the sky is clear too. Mine is also from the October skies.

It's the same moon but our pictures are so different !

Shadow said...

i share your passion for the moon. the moon inspires me, relaxes me, makes me moody (a good thing to blame, and he doesn't mind) and makes me creative (well, i believe that anyway....)

This is a fabulous moonshot. We have had wonderful moons this week, including one shining above a snow flurry. Very mysterious. I wish to could get my camera to take pix of the moon.

lisaschaos said...

It does look similar to your earlier shot. I love looking at the moon, never tire of it. :)

Moonlight becomes you, it goes with your hair .... do you know the rest of the lyrics?

Debbie said...

Great shot, and such a vibrant blue background!

Happy SWF
